Meet the trainer

Christina Vessey

Pre-Employment Coach

I have worked for Futures for the last year and really enjoy my job, I’m part of a fantastic team and together we make the learning experience unforgettable. I have recently been involved with a Family Learning project which involved me engaging with a diverse range of people out in the community - this was great fun and has enabled me to have a really good understanding of the different ways people like to learn. I am lucky enough that my role has now moved back into the classroom, where I can inspire, motivate and enthuse others to achieve their goals and reach their potential, enabling them to go on and secure sustainable employment in their desired sector. In my spare time I like walking my dog (more in the summer than the winter) and exploring new places.
